What's the craic digital people?
Mondays are a great day to glue the fretboard and neck to the body of the ukulele so here we go.... It seems the bridge glued without any problems. Yeoow.
It won't be long now before I put the machine heads on and string ukulele 1 up. What will I call it? So far I've nick named her Miss Shiny.. She's French too.

Happy Sunday digital people.
Time to glue and clamp the bridge.
I masked the outer area and also crafted a piece of wood to rest on top of the bridge as go not damage the instrument.
I learned the science of charging the wood surface energy before gluing as to achieve a lasting bond so I scrapped the areas to be glued just before hand with a razor. Fingers crossed and a little Irish luck this will hold. Yeeeow.

Ukulele Ísland 🇮🇸 'Reykjavík' ready and time to try it out. So here's my uku version of Machine gun by Slowdive. Built from a Swedish Tärnan cigar box from the 1950s and a bent branch of an Icelandic birch tree that my grandparents planted. It's only 33 cm in string length so a bit tight for playing. This thing was real fun to build and it's even more fun to play! 🤘😀

Happy weekend digital people.
I've been working hard on the sides and back which are done and now I've started French polishing the front. I've found something I really love.. 6 more sessions on the front and I'll be preparing the neck for the same French Polish treatment. Look at the sheen on this. Waaah. Ukulele love. It won't be long now. Yee Haa

***Ukulele Update***
The pores in the wood have been filled and now I've finally started French polishing the back. This stage is known as bodying and consists of applying very thin layers of Shellac on an alcohol filled pad with a little olive oil as lubricant. 8 bodying sessions to be done and look at the results after 1 session. WAAAOW.

A few fine details left. Hand drilling holes in the saddle to fix the strings. Since the neck is not straight the holes are not centred on the saddle to align them a bit better to the neck for playing. Lets call this a broken symmetry in the design.

All four coatings finished and time to hang up the ukulele until the varnish is hardened. Looks like this thing will be ready before christmas. Nothing wrong with giving yourself a present.

***Ukulele Update***
French Polish stage is under way. The theory behind filling the pores is by using a tiny amount of Pumice powder and applying it with an alcohol filled pad one can use circular motions to create a Shellac and wood slurry which in turn fills the tiny holes in the wood. The whole point of this stage is to create a glass like surface. This is important as the next stage is the application of Shellac again... The more glass like the surface the more brilliant the shine on the final surface. YEEEEEOOOWW. I've done the back so now for the sides and front.

French Polish stage one was a Success. You can see in the picture the difference between the natural wood and with the 3 Shellac Base coats. I can already see beautiful results and stage 2 (filling the pores) has yet to come. I'll let the Shellac cure overnight and get the Pumice powder out tomorrow. Yeeeow.

***Ukulele update*** Hello digital people.
I'm excited about starting the French Polish process tonight. Yeoow. All sanding to the ukulele body is done and I've mixed my own Shellac flakes. The first stage of French Polishing is applying a few Base coats of Shellac letting the surface dry in between.
As I didn't want to affect the natural colour of the ukulele wood I selected blonde Shellac flakes just to bring out the grain and give richness to the wood tone. Ooh Yes

A small brush makes this so much more fun. Four coats of varnish should do it. Of course polishing in between coats with a fine sandpaper.

***Ukulele update***.
Max reminded me to mask off the area where the fretboard meets the ukulele body and neck/dowel area as we want to glue to the wooden surface for joint strength rather than the finish. Thanks Max.
Today I'll be mixing up my first ever batch of Shellac for French polishing . Blonde dewaxed flakes dissolved in grain alcohol 95%. Pumice powder for the filling stage to achieve a shine on the final surface. Practice wood at the ready. Now all I need to get my hands on is clean white linen to make my application pad for the French polishing itself.

Ahhh haaa. Ukulele build update.
The neck and ukulele body make a Perfect fit. My heart never beat fast drilling before.. An actual adrenaline rush. Haha. Now the next step is to mix my own Shellac for the French Polish stage as I plan to finish the body before the neck/fretboard Is glued. YEEEOW.

Happy Sunday digital people.
I got a drill and have made some measurements so now I'm about to drill dowel holes on the neck and the ukulele body. One 8mm dowel should do but I'll need a little luck to get this one perfect. Haha I've never drilled holes on an instrument before.

The new Maestro ukulele shape is a scaled down version of our very own Vera, giving the Island Series a fresh elegant look while improving overall response and projection.

Ukulele build upgrade. Yeoow. I've acquired bridge clamps but had to get a mate to grind off 7/8ths of an inch from the back as they were to big to reach the desired position but no worries.. Now they fit perfect. Cheers Mickey.
Masking the bridge. DONE. As the measurements from the nutt to the 12th fret is at 8.5" finding the saddle position wasn't to difficult(X2). I also added 1 mil of compensation so fingers crossed the intonation should be good.

Now I'm masking the bridge position as I don't want any Shellac finish on the glued area between the bridge and the body. I need to get the bridge position perfect or the intonation will be horrendous. Simple maths, ruler and pencil.. Here we go

What's up digital world.
I've been experimenting with ways to join the neck/fretboard to the ukulele body with clamps and elastics. It's a long long way to go but I'm already wondering how this instrument is going to sound. Yeee haaa. I'm waiting for my drill to arrive so I can add dowels to the neck and glue/clamp it up.

Home made ukuleles. Yeoow. Time to glue the fretboard to the neck. These wee clamps are kind of futtery to use but I think she'll hold. #ukulelebuilding #glue #fretboard #clamps #ukulele
